4.2/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from tap to pint glass...

A. This beer is very dark, almost black with a creamy white head. Moderate carbonation with nice lacing on the glass.

S. The aroma is very pleasant. Slightly Hoppy with nice roasted scents and bittersweet chocolate overtones.

T. Flavor is very unique. Begins malty, reminiscent of toast, but finishes with a mildly bitter hop character.

M. Medium bodied, but very smooth, due to it's low ABV. From start to finish, the flavor lingers for minutes after each sip.

D. This beer is almost dangerous, even though it is low in alcohol. Definitely a session brew, I could sit and drink this for hours.

Serving type: on-tap

Dark with a white head. Enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub. A good effort, complex with chocolate malt, decent IBU. Drying. Like the brown without the wild rice,a slightly more bitter dunkelweizen. A good effort of the style and one I could drink at any meal.

A- Black not at all see through with a thin white head.

S- Clean malty nose, nice but light.

T- Clean slight malt and a hint of coffee flavor but not overwhelming the rest of the flavor. Kind of light yet a touch of bitterness.

M- Ok thicker then I would expect really should be a touch thinner.

D- Very drinkable which is good, the ABV fits the beer well might be a nice alternative for lunch instead of the porter.
